About the Program

About the Program

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has an outstanding Sleep Medicine program. Our sleep center was one of the first accredited sleep centers in the United States. We are a tertiary referral center and care for a multitude of complicated patients with sleep complaints. We care for patients with a wide spectrum of sleep disordered breathing, hypersomnia, insomnia and sleep movement disorders. We incorporate various PAP therapies, pharmacological management and cognitive behavioral therapy to manage patients. We also have resources with our otolaryngology, dental, psychiatry and psychology colleagues to help co-manage these patients. We have a 14-bed free standing sleep lab as well as beds in the epilepsy monitoring unit that are used for sleep studies at the Brain and Spine Hospital. We also have a busy portable sleep study program.

Our Sleep Medicine Fellowship started in 2007. It is a one-year ACGME-accredited clinical fellowship that has two positions available each year. The focus is on adult sleep medicine with rotations in adult sleep, pediatric sleep, neurology and psychiatry. The fellows also have clinical experiences with otolaryngology, dentistry and psychology. In addition they interpret 200-300 sleep studies a year. In addition, fellows will complete a scholarly project during their fellowship year.

In addition to our core sleep medicine faculty, the fellows will have exposure to faculty in neurology, psychiatry, ENT and dentistry as these disciplines interact closely with our program. We also work in conjunction with Nationwide Children's Hospital Sleep Center to provide the fellows with experience in pediatric sleep medicine. The combined resources of the various disciplines offer outstanding opportunities for training.

Scholarly Work

The fellows will be expected to participate in scholarly activity as well as a quality improvement project during the fellowship year. The activity can be in the form of formal bench or clinical research, or submission of case reports, book chapters or review articles. There is an expectation of publication of the scholarly work. Exposure to faculty conducting research will be given in the beginning of the year so that the fellow can pick a mentor. Time will be given during elective months to work on the chosen project. In addition, the fellows will complete a quality improvement project that will be presented to the sleep medicine group at the end of the year.

The Sleep Medicine Fellowship Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program. Candidates must apply to the program using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS, a service developed by the AAMC, transmits application materials via the internet to programs in residency and selected fellowship specialties. Specialty matches conducted by the NRMP do not provide centralized services for the application process. 

Do not send any program applications to the NRMP.

Programs review candidates' credentials and, if interested, invite them for interviews.
